    • You've never seen Vince Vaughn like this in a movie before. Usually, he's the confident, funny man in comedies, but with this new film from S. Craig "Bone Tomahawk" Zahler, Brawl In Cell Block 99, you...

    • Brawl In Cell Block 99 is a great and unique film that is, somehow, sweet and ultra-violent all at the same time. The fight choreography isn't stylized at all, which brings in a very realistic feel to...
